Hotel Seacrest
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed December 3, 2013 via mobile

We stayed a week in the king suite at the Seacrest. Everything was brand new and materials used in the recent renovation were all high quality. The mattress was excellent. The property is a little gem in the upscale hamlet of Lauderdale by the Sea. The owner, Wolfgang, is very personable and will willingly offer suggestions on restarants and activities to do in the area. He is always on site & his pride of ownership is reflected throughout the property. The pool in the evening is especially a delight. From the Seacrest you can walk anywhere in town. A shopping center with a Publix & CVS is a short walk away. The beach is a 3 minute walk. Three blocks away is the center of town. We liked the beach near the Seacrest because it was so peaceful and uncrowded. It felt like our own private beach. If you like to snorkle , bring your equipment since there is a reef a very short swim away that runs along most of the beaches here. We loved LBTS and our stay at the Seacrest!

I rely on trip advisor to plan all of our trips and we travel often, however I have never written a review before but Hotel Seacrest was such a great experience I felt I needed to add my review because it deserves to be higher on the list. We live in Florida and vacation frequently to the Ft. Lauderdale are for scuba diving. This time we waited to long to book the home we normally rent in Lauderdale by the Sea. In my search for a new place I discovered Hotel Seacrest and because it was so new and there weren't many reviews I did hesitate but after talking to the owner, Wolfgang and the Chamber we arrived to a beautifully landscaped property (even better than the pictures) and an equally beautiful room. We had the one bedroom apartment with washer and dryer and LOVED IT. I am very picky and found nothing to complain about. We were there for a week and the owner (Wolfgang) was consistently working everyday to keep it perfect and was more than accomodating for any request we had. You also have your own patio that is fenced in from the common area which is great for dive gear. For those of you who are like me and always doubt the "short walk to the beach" DONT - the walk was nothing even with a beach bag and chair - and for dive gear - you can walk no problem or do what we did - my husband dropped me and the gear off and then returned the car to the room and walked back. There are benches and showers at the beach entrance that as a diver YOU WILL LOVE. It is also walking distance to the square where all the action is. Aruba is lots of fun and 101 Ocean is a great spot for dinner (try the grilled cheese) and do not leave without a treat from Kilwins they are to die for. This is a place that you will want to return to and you will be so happy you picked it. THIS WILL BE OUR NEW SPOT FROM NOW ON. Thank you Wolfgang and we hope to see you again soon.

Wolfgang is a hands-on owner who provides personalized services from cleaning your rooms to letting guests know about restaurants, what to do in town, etc. Rooms are very clean, comfortable and with lots of space. Two blocks from the beach on a quiet street. Totally worth it.

Nicely appointed, spacious room and beautiful pool area, close to beach and within walking distance to beach, grocery store and all the shops and restaurants. Comfy beds! We had the double room with 2 queen beds. One of the nicest rooms in the area for the price.

My husband and I recently stayed and had a great time , perfect location , rooms and beautiful grounds . The owner was a perfect host and took great pride in his business . Our time at Seacrest was way to short and we look forward in returning . We are in the tourism business in Savannah and we will recomend Seacrest to all of our guests going to Ft.Lauderdale for the perfect Florida experience !

We booked for 7 days the middle of November and loved it so much we stayed an extra 5 days! The one bedroom apartment we were in was spacious and impeccably kept. The pool and courtyard were always spotless.and the day we left all new patio furniture arrived. It looked amazing! The location is fantastic, just two short blocks to the beach and two blocks to Publix and walking distance to the local restaurants. - you couldn't ask for a better location. The owner, Wolfgang, was an excellent host and was very helpful in answering our questions regarding the area. We will definitely return to Seacrest and suggest it to our family and friends.

Room Tip: All the rooms at Seacrest are beautiful and spotless whether on the ground level or upper.

We stayed there over Labor Day weekend and it was great. It was a small hotel with very big rooms. The rooms were very modern with nice granite and fixtures. It was great to have the option of cooking in the room or on the grills outside by the nice pool. The pool was lighted at night, which gave it a nice touch if you wanted to sit outside for a cocktail at night. You are walking distance to the beach and to publix. It is small enough were you can do your own thing or meet some of the other guests and have a drink or dinner. The owner, Wolfgang, was very gracious and I would not hesitate to recommend this hotel to anyone traveling to the area. Next time we return to the area, I am sure we will stay there again.
